us today two senate leaders on budget issues. from oklahoma, republican tom coburn. and from missouri, democrat claire mccasskill. about the sequester happen. will the spending cuts kick in on friday? senator coburn? >> they will. it is not $85 billion because it is a pro rata portionle that until the end of the year so it won't be a full 85 billion. >> chris: but it is going to kick in? >> it will kick in. but at a pro rata rate. so you are not going to see $85 billion all of a shoulden shrink from the federal government. >> chris: we will get to that in a second. senator mccaskill, do you agree it is going to happen? >> unless the republicans are willing to compromise and do a balanced approach i think it will kick in. i'm a little confused about the republican position at this point. it appears that speaker boehner doesn't have any kind of bill that he can even put on the floor of the house that could pass within his caucus and i think there is a little bit of a civil war that has broken out among the republican ranks. >> chris: wait a minute, more, the fact is the house has passed
